Resources for Refugees: Bob Nunnally of the GNPI Joplin office writes, “I took a trip to South Sudan with a group from College Heights Christian Church (CHCC). We had 20 students from refugee camps or other unstable regions join us in Nimule for leadership training. The training was sponsored by CHCC and was in cooperation with Messiah Theological Institute in Mbale. I delivered a Solar Kit to the African ministry team leader, and he showed GNPI programs to the students and led discussions. Several of the students had smart phones, and I showed them how to access Christian content on the Outernet included with the Solar Kit.”

We encourage people to watch, learn, and say it forward with these biblical principles!”
Young Visitors: Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, writes, “We hosted two groups of students from local schools, a group of fifth graders and then college students. Both groups participated in our live radio program, Resplandece (Shine). At the end of the programs, we gave the students some of our materials and explained the purpose of our regional center and overall ministry. They were very happy to be with us and were impressed by the ways we are sharing God’s Word.”
